---------------------------------------

             Summary: Enable authentication tokens in Nexus?
                 Key: INFRA-12343
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-12343
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Nexus
            Reporter: Daniel Halperin


CC [@BrianFox] per recommendation on #asfinfra

Apache's Nexus expects us to put username and password in cleartext in ~/.m2/settings.xml.

For other projects, I have been able to get from Nexus web UI pseudorandom tokens for "username"
and "password" instead. This seems a medium security improvement.

Filing a feature request/wish for token per suggestion on hipchat.

Thanks!
